Making learning accessible to all

The idea for Perlego was born when our founders, Gauthier and Matt, were struggling with the cost of textbooks as students. From that first search for a more affordable alternative, Perlego has grown into a business that is breaking down the barriers to education for students globally.

Improving the lives of learners globally

We believe education has the power to transform lives. By empowering people with all the resources they need to learn, we can give everyone a fair chance at a brighter future.

Supporting publishers & academia

Knowing which sources you can trust has never been more important. By partnering with publishers, we support the creation of trustworthy resources.

Building a more sustainable future

We’ve built sustainability into our core by cutting out resource-heavy print and distribution services. As we grow, we’re working hard to make a positive impact on our planet.

Lovin' it!
"I am loving reading books on Perlego. Books that otherwise are not easily available in-store or online. And even if they are, they're expensive. Perlego has made it very easy for me to find books I need anytime, anywhere..."
